Come Fly With Me
August 4, 2013 2:24 PM



Sometimes I like to take out my camera, put on the macro lense and just cruise around my apartment (including balcony) and snap shots of whatever captures my attention. A while back my attention was captured by this fly, who decided to come fly with me for a while.

Come Fly With Me
Not the easiest object to get a great shot of though, but finally (with some assistance from Photoshop) I do believe I managed to get at least one good one. :-)

So thanks for the flight, pal. :p

My Play Date With Tulips And A Macro Lens
March 11, 2013 6:42 PM



A while back I bought some tulips for myself. One afternoon I just got the urge to take out my camera, put on the macro lens and play around a bit. So below are some photos from My Play Date With Tulips And A Macro Lens. :-)

The Snowflake Symphony
February 20, 2013 1:22 PM



The snow keeps on coming down here in Lyckeby in Sweden. And all winter I have been trying to get some good photos of individual snowflakes, which has not been very easy in my world, but this morning I think I finally got a few good ones. Again, as I did when I spotted the deer a few weeks ago, I just happened to glance out of my window when I noticed some snowflakes caught in spider web. I immediately grabbed my camera and started to shoot. Below are the results; The Snowflake Symphony.

Today we celebrate Tulip Day here in Sweden, so in honor of this day I of course had to buy me some gorgeous tulips. :-) Below are some photos of the many colourful tulips I encountered today in the stores, as well as some snaps of the tulips I bought.

A Sparkling Web

In the midst of all the rain today, I found a sparkling web on my balcony. Below are some of the photos I captured of it.

Now, I do have to admit that I have Photoshopped this sparkling web a little bit. But I have not changed the motive, just adjusted the contrast, tone, colour and sharp some. Felt like experimenting today. ;p

Iris Through A Macro Perspective
June 14, 2012 2:46 PM

   

I have finally gotten my own camera, a Canon EOS 600D. Yay! The one I used before was my mum's, a Canon EOS 450D. But the coolest thing is that my mum has bought a macro lens for her camera, which also fits mine (another yay!). So I tried it out yesterday for the first time, and I absolutely LOVED it!

I loved it because my favourite part of photographing is to get as close to the subject as possible, and to try to capture it from different angles. Which this lens is perfect for. Therefore I was in photograph heaven for a few hours yesterday. Hehe. And sorry mum, but I will most likely borrow your macro lens many more times in the future. Lol! ;-)

But for now, below are my first captures through a macro lens with my new camera - Iris Through A Macro Perspective. A perspective which truly made me discover things I had never noticed before.

Iris Through A Macro Perspective
Inside another world.

A world filled with fruitful life.

And a world filled with beauty.

A marvellous little world of Iris, right in front of my eyes. :-)

It Is A Frog's World
May 30, 2012 6:02 PM

   

Along with warmer weather and rain come frogs. So below are some photos of a frog my dog Lisen and I encountered a while back in the rainy weather in Rödeby forest here in Sweden.

And in a frog's world, it is also important to react fast to unexpected movements. Juuump!!! The huge black furry thing is moving!

Though my dog Lisen did not care much about the frog, I thought it was a cute encounter indeed. :p

Oh Rainy Day
May 18, 2012 3:32 PM

   

Yesterday was Ascension Day here in Sweden, a holiday in the Swedish calendar. And although it was mostly a rainy day yesterday, I thought it was a great opportunity to snap some shots by my mum's garden pond. It looked so fun when the raindrops hit the surface of the water there. So together with my sister's dog Diva, who loves to stare at the fishes in the pond there, we spent quite some time outside by the pond in the rain yesterday. Below are some of the photos I captured.

Oh Rainy Day
Diva keept an eye on the fishes in the pond.

Oh Rainy DayWhile I tried to capture the raindrop dance performed by the lovely raindrops.

Oh Rainy Day
Woot, woot!

Oh Rainy Day
And Diva and I in a bubble.

Just A Little Sunshine
April 17, 2012 8:23 PM

   

It has rained, hailed, snowed and blowed outside here in Lyckeby in Sweden today. But in between showers, our lovely Lady Sun also made some appearances. And it is indeed a relief to know that she is always up there behind the clouds, regardless of how thick they are.

Because a little sunshine...

Just A Little Sunshine
... certainly has a lot of power.

A Melting Lake On The Road To Karlshamn
March 13, 2012 8:26 PM



This Monday I started attending a class about Social Media that take place in the city of Karlshamn here in Sweden. This means that I now commute from where I live in Lyckeby to Karlshamn every day, a total daily distance of 110 kilometers. This also means that daily I stumble across some lovely sights on the road to, from and in Karlshamn. And one of those stunning sights today was the cute little lake Galtsjön. Now I have passed this lake many times before but I have never really stopped to take a closer look at it, until today that is. So below are some photos of A Melting Lake On The Road to Karlshamn.
